:: Be the flame not the moth ::

I am a mixed media artist and writer who makes poetical objects using old books, found text and antique objects as a starting point for my work, which is thought provoking and strangely haunting, often reconnecting with childhood iconography and memories.

My narrative works turn literature into art, coercing familiar characters to emerge from the landscape of their own story, connecting threads of memory to the present time and contemporary values; thus creating new histories.

Books are now becoming works of art in their own right, and there is something fascinating about destroying and recreating in a different form (as has been done with the original element: the trees) – essentially retelling the same story in a different way which gives it a new, magical and transporting power. When we read a story, it inhabits a mental shape, but in our increasingly visual world, people engage viscerally with the stories as a physical reality, and there is no longer a separation of the two.
